Issue#244: Android - Skype Now Hides Your IP Address by Default


  • When Skype first came out, it had one flaw that some folks might have had a problem with. While you were using it, Skype basically broadcast your IP address to anyone who wanted to take a few extra steps to find it.

  • Issue#122436: Skype - No way to remove multiple contacts once for all and get the default of Android no auto sync

    I ran my working Skype on my Android and it automatically synced my mobile contacts to the Skype contacts. I have hundreds of contacts on my mobile, and it sucks when I realized there is no way to delete them all at a time, except swinging the contact leftside to delete them one by one. I am **bleep**ing furious with this **bleep**ty design and mistake of Microsoft. It's too much time to wast and quite annoying! **bleep**!

  • Issue#1058912: Skype - How to get rid of unwanted address book contacts from your android phone on your skype for w

    i spammed this reply on all the other related topics, making my own topic for a badge. don't judge me  i found that skype on my android phone was allowed to access my contact list. i went into settings>device>applications, tap application manager, find skype and tap, tap permissions and removed everything but storage (contacts alone would be sufficient), back out and tap storage, click clear data and clear cache (not sure which is really important here, idc delete all the things), back out and open skype.. you'll have to login again and it will ask to ask permission for everything all over again. say no to contacts, everything else is up to you. on your skype for windows you may have to log out and back in. unwanted address book contacts disappeared on their own. if you want to be an extremist, uninstall and reinstall skype.

    After search google and the skype community, it looks like the solution posted in previous topics is no longer available.  This is more than mildly annoying!   How do I prevent Skype from showing my address book contacts in Skype? The old solution posted in previous topics stated you could uncheck the option in Skype -> Preferences -> General.  I do not see this option in the current version of Skype.   This may be important enough for me to remove skype from my computer.   Anthony
